The Berlin Film Festival have uploaded a short clip from Alexander’s movie War On Everyoneonto their festival website. The movie has it’s world premiere at the festival on February 12th.
Click on the nice, polite picture below to view the clip of bad cop, bad cop!
And here’s a description of the movie from Berlin……
Terry & Bob: tougher than Starsky & Hutch, funnier than Laurel & Hardy and better looking than Siegfried & Roy. These hard-to-impress buddy cops blackmail the entirety of New Mexico, plant cocaine on small-time hoods with bubble perms, consume it there and then, drink non-stop, ram their snazzy car into a wall, return to wife and kids (as Bob does, played by Michael Pena), marvel at ‘chicks with dicks’, or fall in love with the right sort of girl (as Terry does, played by Alexander Skarsgård). But a British Lord, especially a real one, will not allow himself to be pushed around in the manner to which these carefree, chaotic cops have become accustomed. Terry and Bob get more entangled in a web of blackmail, abduction and drugs than they could ever have imagined even in their wildest acid-nightmares … Irish director John Michael McDonagh will be familiar to Panorama audiences through his sarcastic portrait of small-town cops The Guard and his quick-witted drama about sexual abuse in the church, Calvary. His latest film is a bitter, hyperactive, tragicomic trip against a crazy backdrop of references to cop films and crime series, with great music and two male leads who really take it to the limit.
Bankside Films have released a new image and new promo poster from Alexander Skarsgard’s movie War On Everyone which has its world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival on February 12th. No word yet on if Alexander will be able to attend, he is currently in LA filming Big Little Lies. Cross your fingers he can make it!
Alexander Skarsgard’s new movie War On Everyone will receive it’s world premiere at the Berlin Film Festival in February. It will be the third time that director John McDonagh has brought one of his movies to Berlin.
Fingers crossed that Alexander should have no problems attending the festival, which runs from February 11 to 21, as he is expected in Berlin next year to begin filming his latest project Mute.
Make up artist Jolynne has shared some pictures from the set of Alexander’s movie War On Everyoneon her twitter account (The last time someone shared pics from this set they were quickly removed but so far these are staying put).
There is a nice HitFix interview with Alexander with mentions of “War On Everyone” and “Tarzan” as well as “The Diary of a Teenage Girl”.
I was lucky enough to see TDOATG at Sundance and it sort of stuck with me ever since which I guess is now almost seven months later. How you got involved and what convinced you to take the part?
Well, I got involved not in the traditional way through my agent, it was actually my friend Jack McBrayer, a comedian that was on “30 Rock,” I don’t know if you know who that is…
So, he’s a dear friend of mine and when I was back in L.A. we were neighbors. He basically said, ‘My friend Marielle wrote this script, it’s her first feature and I think she’s really cool and really smart. She wants you to read it. Can I give it to you?’ And I said, ‘Sure.’ And I read it and I just fell in love with the script. I thought it was such a unique story and I loved the character. I saw it as a real interesting challenge to try to figure out how to play Monroe in a way that wasn’t too predatory — just kind of make him real and find some life in that. And then I met Marielle and I was kind of blown away by her energy and her enthusiasm. I mean this project has been her baby for almost a decade. She adapted the comic book for the stage first and did a play off Broadway in New York where she played me Minnie herself and wrote the script. It was a combination of that kind of just like being really just fallen in love with Marielle and her energy and feeling like this could be an interesting challenge to find a way of making Monroe layered and real.
We all enjoyed seeing Alexander Skarsgard at The Sundance Film Festival this year promoting “The Diary of a Teenage Girl” ( and it was our biggest weekend for hits here on this blog since True Blood ended) Now there looks to be a good chance that Alexander’s upcoming movie “War On Everyone” may be going to Sundance 2016.
Alexander Skarsgard is currently in Reykjavik, Iceland, for the final days of filming “War On Everyone”. Lucky fan Katerina Canyon posted the above photo today after meeting him on the set. Thank you Katerina.
The above image from Alexander Skarsgard’s movie “War On Everyone” has appeared today at ISSUU Cannes Daily, along with a short paragraph:
“Bankside Films’ in-demand Cannes slate will be headlined by War On Everyone, John Michael McDonagh’s follow-up to Calvary, which has been snapped up by Sony and Icon for multiple territories. Michael Peña, Alexander Skarsgard and Theo James star in the black comedy, currently shooting in the US, about two corrupt cops who meet their match.”
Filming is currently taking place in New Mexico, and will finish shortly in Iceland.
Screen Daily have released some more details about Alexander Skarsgard’s new movie “War On Everyone”
They confirm some new cast members and that worldwide distribution deals are already in place (including for the UK!).
John Michael McDonagh’s follow-up to Calvary, War On Everyone, has rounded out cast and booked some key deals with the shoot now underway in New Mexico.
Divergent star Theo James is the latest young talent to join McDonagh’s black comedy, which has begun principal photography in Albuquerque.
Michael Peña (Fury), Alexander Skarsgård (True Blood) and James are starring in the story of two corrupt cops who set out to blackmail and frame every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path…until they intimidate someone who is seemingly more dangerous than they are. Or is he?
